Request Replacement Issues (Claims)

Missing a print issue? Please submit your request for a replacement to Tomi Gunn. Claims must be filed no earlier than three weeks and no later than six months from the publication's month of issue. Because of limited supplies, we cannot fill requests more than six months after the publication date.

Older issues of the JMLA may be accessed for free through PubMed Central, and older issues of the MLA News are available to MLA members on MLANET.

Because of changes to the Journal of the Medical Library Association (JMLA) platform and printer, the January 2017 issue was mailed March 9 to JMLA subscribers. Please do not claim replacement issues before April 2017.

Send address changes to:

Membership Dept.
